 I would  lke to add myself as an AU to other people accounts with American Express. Is there any way to add myself and activate it without putting in my social? Also if not how long does it take to get added to my credit report? Meaning if I would cancel it within 2 weeks would  it not even hit the credit bureau?

The primary could call & say he doesn't have your ssn handy & no need to activate it before use.

Not all of a sudden. They are always asking for it bc they want/need it for their records. I have been ignoring it for a looooong time.
